Devils Garden

Creativity.  Dad’s never lacked that.  But his imagination ran wild the first time he set foot in the Devils Garden at the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah.  Soaring stone arches, curious hoodoos and mushroom rocks made him blink twice to make sure he wasn’t imagining things.  After all it was pretty early in the […]

The E-Kit To The Rescue

For as long as I can remember it held a place of honor in the van.  It overflowed with tools, gadgets and a lot of zip ties.  That sucker easily weighed a ton.  However, we gave much honor and respect to the monstrous, gigantic, blue E-Kit. My Dad’s emergency kit often saved the day when […]

When Photo Shoots Fail Part 2

Every professional photographer experiences failure. Sometimes we spend a lot of money to travel to a fantastic location for a limited amount of time and a giant storm hits tanking our plans. Maybe a crowded photo hot spot with lots of restrictions makes it challenging to get one photo much less multiple show stoppers. Occasionally […]

When Photo Shoots Fail

We arrived early and staked out our spot on the beach.  We waited patiently with other photographers for sunset at the magical Keyhole Arch at Pfeiffer Beach in California.  Then we heard it.  A distinct hum filled the air and the heads of 12 photographers swiveled to and fro searching for the source.  It was… […]

Burning Down The House

We’d heard rumors of Native American ruins with a roof that breathed fire. We even found jaw-dropping pictures of the place.  The name “House on Fire” certainly seemed to fit.  But we had burning questions: Did the rocks above these ruins really look like a ball of flames? Or did someone just play with fire […]

Baby It’s Cold Outside

He couldn’t ignore a triple dog dare.  But you knew what was coming next.  One lick and Flick was stuck to that flagpole.  Stuuucck.  Stuck!  The whaling and crying was epic.  That classic scene from “A Christmas Story” sums up the trouble with shooting in freezing weather.  Moisture.  While you probably won’t be stuck to […]

Are We There Yet? (Part 3)

You’re probably wondering if this trip is ever going to end.  Dad’s epic photo adventure through Northern California, Oregon and Washington state lasted six weeks.  Up and down the mountains, to the coast and over the river the little Mouse House (the folks’ Casita) rolled.  Today we’ll explore Oregon and Washington’s treasures before heading home […]

Are We There Yet? (Part2)

After two successful weeks of exploring California’s Central Coast, Dad continued on his epic, really, really long photo quest through California.  Mom and Dad crammed a lot of sightseeing into this half of their trip.  As a result, they only stayed a few days at each stop.   The “Mouse House” (the folks’ Casita) left […]

Nesting Brandt's Cormorants

Are We There Yet? (Part 1)

The fabled Pfeiffer Beach in Big Sur, California was proving to be illusive.  Dad and I had repeatedly cruised up and down Highway 1 looking for Sycamore Canyon Road and the little bakery my massage therapist had assured me would be near the turn-off.  No canyon road and no bakery.  No beach.  No Keyhole Arch.  […]
